a lot of hot button issues. >> yeah. the most recently retired justices were john paul stevens went out at 90. david souter 69, sandra day o'connor 75. is there a tradition of when justices usually retire, be it age, or time served? >> well, they're like most human beings. a lot of factors weigh in. there is -- there was a tradition where justices would tend to retire during the term of a president that was at the same party that appointed them. but we know neither justices souter nor stevens did that. they were both republican employees and went out during president obama's term. life circumstances can drive retirement decisions. so it's really not scientifically predictable or politically predictable. >> do you see any most likely candidates if another seat opens up under president obama? >> you know, i think if president obama, first of all, justice ruth bader ginsburg i think the pressure to replace her with another woman appointee would be enormous. we've made progress in getting a third of the court female and i don't think president obama or any president would want to go backwar
the famous voter i.d. law upheld in a 6-3 decision. oddly it was john paul stevens made the majority opinion. put it up on the screen. because indiana's is free inconvenience of going to the bureau of motor vehicles and poising for a photograph does not qualify as a substantial burden on most voters' rights to vote. isn't that really quite eloquently the point here. before you walk out of the house to do anything in your life, you have to have some form of identification? >> is there will a municipal law across the nation that requires an i.d. on your person. what i.d. do you have? have social security card, you have your birth certificate and you can go to dmv. it's not too often you see the u.s. supreme court let's look at this practically. don't come forward and say somehow this is an equal protection issue and you are using this law to prevent people from voting. those in the lower socioeconomic class. >> gregg: bob, critics say, this discriminates against minorities as well in the states that voter idss 6 passed and any majority participation has gone up? >> that is right. isn't it true
, john paul stevens. they all left completely alienated from the modern republican party, no one more dramatically than sandra day o'connor, who, of course, was the symbol of the republican party for years, ronald reagan's first appointment to the court. but the new justices, alito, roberts, reflect the modern republican party. and that split between the moderate vanishing species of republican and the more modern conservative republicans is played out in court. >> what happens -- go ahead. >> i was saying the book is fantastic. there's so many interesting things in the book and i heard your talk last week and learned so much. >> thank you. >> right up to the minute on this health care stuff. you talked about how this health care decision got carved up and how the conservatives lost roberts. i thought that was fascinating. >> or is it a win in a way? >> well, it was a loss for the conservative cause. i don't think there's any doubt about that. in the short run or the long run. but john roberts, in addition to being very conservative, is also a strategic thinker. and he viewed the heal
. as it was not a biased court. this was a 6-3 opinion that was written by the hard-core right-winger john paul stevens and i say that facetiously of course. but what they said was it was constitutional. it was legal and it was proper for indiana to institute a voter i.d. system. it was proper that a republican legislature had decided to enact this and that while democrats had complained and said this was an overtly partisan method the supreme court also said that is part of the electoral process and that is why citizens and the their representatives who made those decisions. the third day that i would come up with when you ask if this is a racialization question is the year 2012. that is the year we are in right now. earlier this year the richmond dispatch issued an editorial that said i like my orioles served medium rare. in that particular editorial they noted that they have strong opposition to the voter i.d. laws in virginia they were going to the legislature. they thought that they were racist and they thought they would disproportionately impact the pool of color. in april they issued that edito
